Overview of the webinar

  • This webinar identifies and explores some recent technology advances in construction and suggests some potential impacts on project managements and construction claims.  Technology has transformed the world radically over the past few decades.  Although the construction industry is slow to change, technological advances have been introduced into the industry and even more are in development and underway. 
  • The purpose of this webinar is to identify some of these technology advances and offer some perspective on how these advances are likely to change construction projects – construction management and construction claims.  The research report underlying this webinar initially examined some 21 early stage startups working on construction oriented technology advances.  The research was narrowed down and looked more closely at how 14 specific technology advances are most likely to change the way projects are planned, design, and constructed.
